CLICK is to press and release a button on a pointing device, like a mouse,
while holding the pointer on the choice you are making. Click or double
click buttons on a screen. You can also SELECT choices on a screen.
PRESS is to press a key on a keyboard.

This is the most common understanding among readers per IBM dictionaries,
etc. Look at the many conventions used in many books! I would suggest your
vendor to really consider the readers and their needs.
